Chinese Community Computer Lab San Francisco


Top city and community advocates will gather to launch the Chinese Community Computer Lab and Training Program. The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is mandating Meaningful Use,  a set of standards involving the use of electronic health records to improve health outcomes, increased efficiency, and additional research data for healthcare systems. Meaningful Use is to be achieved through 3 stages over 5 years. The purpose and benefits of Meaningful Use include 1) Complete and accurate information, 2) Better access to information, and 3) Patient Empowerment.

Many of our community members are without basic computer and Internet skills. The Chinese Hospital Health System is at the forefront in working towards this national healthcare improvement goal by preparing and equipping our community with basic computer and Internet skills to access their personal health records.  For community members who are literate with using computers and Internet, we will show them how to access their personal health records.  This program aims to minimize the digital divide through linguistically appropriate and hands-on training.

First Chinese Baptist Church San Francisco


On two upcoming Saturdays – August 24 and September 7, the San Francisco Fire Department and NICOS Chinese Health Coalition will be jointly putting on the NERT (Neighborhood Emergency Response Team) training in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

The San Francisco Fire Department hosts NERT trainings in just about every neighborhood in San Francisco. The upcoming training will be the only NERT training that is conducted in Cantonese. The most recent Cantonese NERT training took place in Chinatown in the fall of 2011, which saw more than 60 community member, most of them bilingual, become certified NERT volunteers.

NERT training cover invaluable life-saving information including ways to be prepared for earthquakes, conducting hazard mitigation, survival tips, fire safety, utility shut-off, disaster first-aid, search and rescue, and responding to terrorist attacks. The last day of class will also include hands-on skills training that include practicing medical triage, transporting victims, and how to use a fire extinguisher.

The training will take place in two separate locations. On Saturday, August 24, the training will be held at the First Chinese Baptist Church at 15 Waver Place (by Sacramento). On Saturday, September 7, the training will be held at the Chinatown Salvation Army at 1450 Powell Street (by Vallejo).

All participants will receive the SF NERT Training Certificate of Completion, a NERT ID badge, work gloves, safety helmet, emergency vest, and other first aid/disaster preparedness supplies. Participants must attend both sessions in order to receive the certificate and supplies.

The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is an emergency preparedness organization sponsored by the San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD). The program offers free, basic and advanced preparedness training to those who live and work in San Francisco, and provides an organizing framework for neighborhood teams in the City. Teams gather after a catastrophic incident to survey their neighborhoods, provide information to the SFFD, conduct light search and rescue and medical triage, help transport victims to medical treatment facilities, and direct untrained volunteers. Since the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, NERT has trained over 20,000 citizens to assist the San Francisco Fire Department after a major disaster by taking care of themselves, their families, and their neighbors.

NICOS Chinese Health Coalition is a public-private-community partnership of more than 30 health and human service organizations. The mission of NICOS is to enhance the health and the well-being of the San Francisco Chinese community. NICOS has been convening the Chinatown Disaster Preparedness Committee since 1985, after the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Since then, NICOS has been actively engaged in making local community members and non-governmental organizations more disaster resilient through coalition-building, trainings exercises, and drills.
